    How long would it take to complete this lot with 2-4 inches of snow. Lot is square with one lonley light pole stuck in the middle. No other obstacles. Im figuring 20-30 min? I will be using a 7.6' blade.

    Thanks

    About 130x130...I would say around 1/2 hr. with the blade you're talking about. That's provided you are efficient with you blade and know ho wide you can run vs. how much overlap you must take. It's when you have to start going back and catching tails that starts taking up the time. Anyway, do yourself a favor, and get yourself a set of wings. It's the cheapest $180 you'll ever spend.

    Wings are extensions you can add to each side of the blade therefore being able to push more snow at a time.

    They also angle the snow towards the middle of the plow (not adjustable) and help with trail off, and they also help for cleanup (pushing straight ahead)
